We empower accredited investors, family offices, and funds to benefit from the new token economy.
A new Token Economy is the path to a more efficient, transparent, and fair financial system.
Tokenization converts the value of an asset — a building, a company, a piece of art — into tokens that can be subdivided, traded and stored on the blockchain.
Tokenization makes illiquid assets liquid and tradable, similar to what the stock market does for big corporations (but at a fraction of the cost.)
Why Are We
The New Token Economy will soon go mainstream, like the Internet economy did in the ‘90s.
Whoever enters the market today enjoys an even greater advantage than merely being a first mover: they will partecipate in the creation of an entirely new category of capital.
Where Do We
We do *not* invest just in Blockchain startups. In fact, we use the Blockchain technology for ourselves, to provide a premium value to the investors and more transparency.
We invest in startups and scale-ups with three focuses in mind: Talent, Tech, and Transformation. Thus, the decision to name the entire project 3T.
With a proper use of the blockchain it's possibile to achieve the speed of a great VC and the liquidity of the stock market at a fraction of the cost.)
New benefits for the investors.
